Waxed bomber poured into a snifter. The brew appears black in color with a dark brown head that rests atop with decent retaining power. Some patchy lace and legs of alcohol are noted.

The aroma is meaty with a touch of sorta smoked chocolate meets vanilla and caramel. A mild indication of some herbal hops are felt across the back of the nose along with a lasting indication of alcohol and roasted to charred grain.

The taste includes plenty of bitter chocolate and roast with enough of a neutral booziness. Then a lot of barrel nuance is noticed tasting of vanilla, caramel and a contradting amount of roast and char. It's a real good blend of flavors.

This is a boozy brew, full bodied and moderately carbonated. Pretty nice offering that showcases some familiarity of the base beers included in this. It really is greater than the sum of it's parts. However, I dont think I would ever consider paying the cost of admission on this one. Thank you kindly Mark for the generous share.

thanks to Mark for sharing this, enjoyed chilled in a 1/2 pint.

The color is black and opaque with thick tan cap with ultra fine bead. The smell is rich with dark malt and has a yeast aroma with creamy cocoa quality and butterscotch with light stone fruit odor and mild hint of oak with a subtle alcohol aroma. The feel is rich and thick with roasted texture and mild spice with a smooth cocoa and light woody feel with medium carbonation and semi-high alcohol in the finish.

The taste have a very chewy malt presence with roasted and light woody taste and slight chocolate fudge thick dark toffee-like taste and slight dark bread with the flavor of wood present with subtle dark cocoa and earthy yeast element. The flavor of alcohol is there but not overpowering considering the richness of the coffee and toffee flavors in the malt. Overall this is a great blended stout wonderful flavor ...the only thing holding it back as far as drinkability is the alcohol level.

Thanks to drewone for sharing this one at Wowcoolman's tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, chocolate syrup, vanilla, and bourbon flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with fantastic barrel aged qualities in the smell and taste.

Serving type: bottle.
